Lowry Successfully Defends Summary Judgment before Ninth Circuit

April 23, 2019

Michael Lowry (Partner-Las Vegas) defended a casual steakhouse with locations across the country from a slip-and-fall lawsuit in Las Vegas. The guest alleged the restaurant negligently maintained its floor, causing her injuries. The local federal court granted summary judgment, and the plaintiff appealed. The Ninth Circuit affirmed the decision, agreeing with Michael that the guest "failed to raise a genuine dispute of material fact as to whether the restaurant caused the foreign substance to be on the floor or whether it had actual or constructive notice of a hazardous condition and failed to remedy it.”
